After the wealthy nation that was founded on God is destroyed, the next to fall is the nation that forms alliances with God’s people to rebel against the global government. That rebel nation will be given to the international community that governs by the mark of the beast. The global order is putting down those with independent economic power, that are rebellious to the internal government, and that have connections to the God of Jesus Christ.
Another Independent Power Bites the Dust
Another independent nation tried to claim resources from under the nose of the international community that governs by the mark of the beast. This is the same nation that joined a rebellious alliance with the people of God. Together, they tried fighting against their captivity. When the wealthy nation founded on God is destroyed, then the next rebellious and wealthy nation is to fall. That nation is a monster that claims the rights to the economic resources within its territory. Just like the fallen wealthy nation founded on God, this rebel nation also discards the Gospel of Jesus Christ and snubs the international community. They are no help whatsoever to God’s people when support is needed. By the time the global power is done with them, their whole country and their citizens will be like fish laid out in the desert. They will be given over to the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky. That is God’s judgment on them for betraying His people.
“‘You have been a staff of reed for the people of Israel. When they grasped you with their hands, you splintered and you tore open their shoulders; when they leaned on you, you broke, and their backs were wrenched. “‘Therefore. this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will bring a sword against you and kill both man and beast. Egypt will become a desolate wasteland. Then they will know that I am the Lord. Ezekiel 29:6b-9
The Rebellious Nation Will Maintain a Low Place Among the Nations
The international community will never again allow Egypt to be a powerful leader within the league of nations. That is God’s judgment and is the status of modern-day Egypt. Also, the total collapse of the wealthy nation founded on God is still an act in process. Just like the United States is no longer, “One Nation Under God,” and its downfall seems to be getting worse every day. The fires of crime and violence continue to increase with no relief in sight. Mass shootings, protests, riots, school violence, etc. goes on and on and just seems to be no answer. Whatever powerful nation is joined to it when it totally collapses into all out tribulation, will fall with it. In real time, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Israel has working relationships with the US, but Egypt’s and Israel’s relationship is described as “complex” at its best. Egypt isn’t even close to being a source of confidence for God’s people. In fact, Egypt’s god is Islam!
“It will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself above the other nations. I will make it so weak that it will never again rule over the nations. Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.’” Ezekiel 29:15-16
The Rebellious Nation is Given to the Global Community
In real time, Egypt is more in line with the international government that rules by the mark of the beast than it is to an alliance with a nation of God. Egypt’s god of Islam would be far nearer to an alliance with the internal government than it would be to Christianity. In these verses, God says that Egypt and all of its wealth will be given to the international community. At the same time, Israel is holding its own as far as being an independent nation under God in a global region that is hostile to it on all sides. God made that horn of independent government grow for the Israelites. When the wealthy nation founded on God totally collapses, global persecution and tribulation will follow. I can see why, because if the US falls, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt goes with it. Bloodshed will be everywhere and poured out on the streets. The global system of the human robots will adopt some countries, such as Egypt, and will be persecuting and killing others.
“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to give Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will carry off its wealth. He will loot and plunder the land as pay for his army. I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign Lord. “On that day I will make a horn grow for the Israelites, and I will open your mouth among them. Then they will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 29:19-21
